Frustrations of broken cars and house/apartment hunting...

Cory's car has been acting up for a long time now, it seems like FOREVER! He’s supposed to start his drive out to Utah tomorrow but his car will overheat and then cool back down quickly and then get super hot again. I don't really know anything about cars but I do know overheating=BAD... especially when its been doing that for so long and nothing seems to fix it!! So the car is going into see yet ANOTHER mechanic. I now have a really bitter feeling to all mechanics; I think they totally are just there not to really help, but to totally rip off. Hopefully this new place the car is going to tomorrow will change my opinion. Hopefully this new place will fix it, the problem will be simple and cheap to fix and my husband can drive to be with me. I just really DON'T want to be afraid the entire time he is driving, worrying that he might blow up along the way, or be broken down in the middle of nowhere.

We have also been looking for somewhere to live in Utah for FOREVER! We started looking clear back at the end of July. At that time everyone wanted their place filled before we got to Utah in September, I totally understand that. But we kept looking and our arrival date kept getting closer. And now I've been here for a few weeks and have been looking with even more determination and have been having the hardest time. Part of the problem is we will only be in Utah for 8 months, then its back to Texas for the summer for Cory's work. I don't mind the moving too much.If it means I have to see a little less of Cory for a few months during the summer and then after he can be home more often with me and the baby the rest of the year, I'm game. But not many places are too excited to do a lease for that long. Or if they are rent is through the roof! We don't need too much space, a 2 bedroom is plenty. I had no idea how stressful house/apartment hunting could be. It doesn't help either that I naturally get stressed out about things and tend to worry a lot. But add that with pregnancy hormones and everyone LOOK OUT; here come the water works and craziness! This crazy psycho chick emerges, and as fast as she comes a little while later, I'm fine, and feel ridiculous looking back at my freak out. I know everything will work out, it's just so frustrating. I have such a sweet husband. He is so understanding, and helps me so much. He is the most patient man I know. I can't wait to see him soon. Hopefully he will be able to leave tomorrow as soon as his car has the full 100% safe clearance to start the long drive back. So... tomorrow is a new day and it’s a new week. I have a few more new places I need to call. Thank goodness for family who always has a watchful eye for, "FOR RENT" signs and apartments or townhomes they think might work. If anyone knows of a good apartment, townhome, or house for rent please let me know. I am so anxious to be settled with Cory and start getting stuff for Hayden and his nursery. We haven't even really got anything for our house; this will be our 3rd move since we have been married (9 months). I just though why buy a ton of junk and decorations and stuff if we were just gonna have to pick it up and move. Finally Utah will be a finally destination. I can finally “nest.” I can finally decorate and get crafty around our place. So again, if anyone knows of anywhere, please give me the heads up. :) I hope everyone has a fabulous new week!

I want to put in a special request for a pregnancy picture of my beautiful cousin. I want to see your tummy! Do know that everything will work out, it always does. Have you tried looking at Craigslist.com? You could find an apartment to rent there and then when the three of you :o) move back to TX for a few months you could post your apartment on there to sublet it for a few months until you come back, that way you don't have to hunt all over again. I can empathize with you. Before we had been married 1 & 1/2 years we had moved 4 times, one of which was into a storage unit and we were homeless for over a month. We lived like parasites off friends and family, gotta love that. I know everything will work out and I hope it does soon for you sanity's sake :o).

I wish I knew my final destination! I'm like you, I haven't really been decorating because I know I'll just have to redo it all when we finally have a house! Good luck with everything.

I hope you find somewhere fast.. but if you are still looking for something mid to the end of October we are going to be moving out of our townhouse that we are renting. Just as soon as our house is done. But like I said I hope you find something before then!

We are living is some apartments in syracuse and moving out soon, so there should be some available! There are also ones across the street too. Let me warn ya they are older and not the fanciest, but they are really cheap and are 2 bedrooms. They worked out great for us!! Sorry about the car trouble, that's the worst!
